I haven't done a challenge card for quite a while, so after making this card yesterday I decided to have a look through all the blogs and came up with two challenges which I could enter the card in.
5x5 white card stock
papers from Simply Homemade magazine
white candi
peel off sentiment
peel off pens
'Sally's party dress' digi stamp from The Digi Garden
(coloured the candi with the same promarker as the the bow & shoes, the peel off was coloured by using a blue peel off marker)
entering into:

my zen is not tangled

I Sky+ed Mel Heaton's Zentangle show on C & C, she was so enthusiastic about them I thought I'd give it a go, so I grabbed some scrap paper and a biro and had a play.......

Originally I drew 3 shapes, a box at the top of the pag, bottom left a flower and then to the right a wonkier flower, I was having fun filling them in so I decided that I would join them together, when I'd finished I realised it looked like a chick!
How cool is that?

A set of 5 atc's made for "Words of Wisdom" theme swap over at Peel Off Crazy, it was a 3 for 3 swap, but I loved the papers so much I didn't want to stop, they practically made themselves.
